Lightbulb Keyboard Shortcut - Get Geolocation Data of a Selected IP address
Posted by: denilama - 03-16-2018, 08:29 AM - Forum: Keyboard shortcuts with AutoHotkey code - Replies (3)

This following script will help you quickly bring up geolocation data for a selected IP address. The script works by copying selected content to the clipboard, which, if it looks like an IPv4 address (e.g. 255.255.255.255), will start “iplocation.net” with your default browser. The IP address is automatically entered as a query. This will give you the geolocation data for the IP address.

Need help creating a keyboard shortcut with ShortKeeper using the following AutoHotkey code? This 5-minute tutorial will help!

ClipSaved := ClipboardAll
Clipboard =
SendInput, ^c
ClipWait, 2
if ErrorLevel
{
  MsgBox % "Failed attempt to copy text to clipboard."
}
else
{
  IpAddress := Trim(Clipboard)
  FoundPos := RegExMatch(IPAddress, "^(\d{1,3})\.(\d{1,3})\.(\d{1,3})\.(\d{1,3})$")
  if (FoundPos)
    Run % "https://www.iplocation.net/?query=" . IpAddress
  else
    MsgBox % "Invalid IPv4 address selected!"
}
Clipboard := ClipSaved

The script will restore the previous clipboard content.

Spaces and tabs at the beginning and end of the selection will be omitted from the selection.

An error message will be displayed (line #7) if nothing is selected. The IP address verification occurs at line #12.

If you would like to launch the geolocation website (iplocation.net) with a non-default web browser, replace line #14 with one of the following:

For Chrome
Run % "chrome.exe " . "https://www.iplocation.net/?query=" . IpAddress

For Edge
Run % "microsoft-edge:https://www.iplocation.net/?query=" . IpAddress

For Firefox
Run % "firefox.exe " . "https://www.iplocation.net/?query=" . IpAddress

For Internet Explorer
Run % "iexplore.exe " . "https://www.iplocation.net/?query=" . IpAddress

Lightbulb Keyboard Shortcut - Open Several Web Pages at Once
Posted by: denilama - 03-15-2018, 04:07 PM - Forum: Keyboard shortcuts with AutoHotkey code - No Replies

ShortKeeper already has a basic “Launch website” command to let you quickly create a shortcut to launch a web page. But what if you want a shortcut that will launch several web pages at once? ShortKeeper has you covered with its “Run AutoHotkey code” command.

The following three scripts (one for IE, one for Chrome, and one for Firefox) launch four websites (cedeq.com, autohotkey.com, google.com, and bing.com). The scripts are designed to launch all four websites in different tabs inside the same browser window.

Need help creating a keyboard shortcut with ShortKeeper using the following AutoHotkey code? This 5-minute tutorial will help!

Internet Explorer (IE):

Pwb :=  ComObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application")
Pwb.Visible:=True
Pwb.Navigate("https://www.cedeq.com")
Pwb.Navigate("https://www.autohotkey.com", 2048)
Pwb.Navigate("https://www.google.com", 2048)
Pwb.Navigate("https://www.bing.com", 2048)

Google Chrome:
run % "chrome.exe " . "https://www.cedeq.com"
winwait ahk_class Chrome_WidgetWin_1
run % "chrome.exe " . "https://www.autohotkey.com"
run % "chrome.exe " . "https://www.google.com"
run % "chrome.exe " . "https://www.bing.com"

Mozilla Firefox:
run % "firefox.exe " . "https://www.cedeq.com"
winwait ahk_class MozillaWindowClass
run % "firefox.exe " . "https://www.autohotkey.com"
run % "firefox.exe " . "https://www.google.com"
run % "firefox.exe " . "https://www.bing.com"

Simple enough!!

  ShortKeeper Review & Tutorial from Laxman Singh
Posted by: denilama - 03-11-2018, 01:39 PM - Forum: ShortKeeper suggestions and feedback - No Replies

Nice ShortKeeper review & tutorial:

...There are many application launcher software and software to create shortcuts for frequently used text also available but such software work for a specific purpose only. This software, on the other hand, is multipurpose and therefore good to use. You can also modify and delete any hotkey when you no longer want to use that particular hotkey for a specific command...

...The interface of this free keyboard shortcut manager software is neatly divided into three sections...

...This software is pretty helpful when you perform some common tasks regularly and need some simpler way to perform those tasks. Instead of manually typing a frequently used text, open a file, application, save selected text in a text file, you can set custom hotkeys for all such tasks using this free keyboard shortcut manager. It will make things easier...

See complete article (with pictures) at:

Thanks Laxman!

Lightbulb Keyboard Shortcut - Get a Word Count of Selected Text
Posted by: denilama - 03-07-2018, 04:20 PM - Forum: Keyboard shortcuts with AutoHotkey code - No Replies

Have you ever had to copy and paste text to Microsoft Word just to get a word count? If so, this AutoHotkey script may interest you. It counts how many words are in a selected portion of text (from a website, document, or other), pretty much like the Word Count function in MS Word.

The script counts the number of non-whitespace character groups. The count result is supposed to be the same as MS Word (2010) in English and French languages. So this script will count "It’s AutoHotkey-based" and "Bonjour !" as two words.

Need help creating a keyboard shortcut with ShortKeeper using the following AutoHotkey code? This 5-minute tutorial will help!

ClipSaved := ClipboardAll
Clipboard =
SendInput, ^c
ClipWait, 2
if ErrorLevel
{
  MsgBox % "Failed attempt to read selected text."
}
else
{
  NewClipboard := Trim(Clipboard)
  Count := 0
  Position := 1
  while, Position := RegExMatch(NewClipboard, "\S+", Out, Position+Strlen(Out))
    Count++
  MsgBox % "Words :" . Count
}
;Clipboard := ClipSaved

The script replaces the clipboard content with the selected text. The last line of code (#18) can be uncommented (delete ';' at the beginning of the line) to restore the clipboard with its previous content.

This script is optimized to be used with ShortKeeper. As such, there is no "Return" at the end and variable(s) don’t need to be cleared. ShortKeeper will do this automatically. Just copy/paste the code in the PARAM field in ShortKeeper, set your hotkey, save, and you’re ready to use your new keyboard shortcut.

  Open document vs Quick notepad with ShortKeeper
Posted by: Philippe27 - 03-06-2018, 10:48 AM - Forum: ShortKeeper suggestions and feedback - Replies (1)

If you have a todo list document like me that you write in every now and then, you have to know the difference between opening it with the function ''Open document'' and the ''Quick notepad'' one in ShorKeeper. 

When I use my todo list with notepad, I always minimize it instead of closing it because I know it is not the last time I will use it during the day. With ShorKeeper, if I use the "Open document" function to open my todo list, it will work. The problem comes when I minimize it. By doing so, when I will trigger the macro that opens my todo list, it will re-open it instead of bringing back the one I minimized. 

I bet you know what's next! If you minimize your notepad todo list, and you trigger the macro that opens it through the "Quick notepad" function, it will bring back the one you already opened. It is a cleaner way to use it because you always have the latest saved version of your document instead of having 3, 4 or 5 opened todo list on your desktop not knowing which one is the last saved.

Lightbulb Keyboard Shortcut - Set Font Size in MS Word
Posted by: denilama - 03-01-2018, 09:16 AM - Forum: Keyboard shortcuts with AutoHotkey code - No Replies

With AutoHotkey you can easily set properties in Microsoft Word (e.g., font size, font name, font style, font color, line spacing, etc.). The following script is designed to set font size. By adapting this script, you can set any property you want in Word using AutoHotkey.

Need help creating a keyboard shortcut with ShortKeeper using the following AutoHotkey code? This 5-minute tutorial will help!

Critical
if WinActive("ahk_class OpusApp")
{
  ControlGet, hwnd, hwnd, , _WwG1, A
  if DllCall("oleacc\AccessibleObjectFromWindow", "Ptr", hwnd, "UInt", 0xFFFFFFF0, "Ptr", -VarSetCapacity(IID,16)+NumPut(0x46000000000000C0, NumPut(132096, IID, "Int64"), "Int64"), "Ptr*", pacc) = 0
    WordApp := ComObject(9, pacc, 1).Application
  WordApp.Selection.Font.Size := 24
}
else
  MsgBox 0x40040, ShortKeeper, There is no Word document window active.

You can replace line 7 in the above script with any of the following command lines to set these properties.

Set font name to Arial Black:
WordApp.Selection.Font.Name  := "Arial Black"
Set font style to italic:
WordApp.Selection.Font.Italic := 1
Set font style to bold:
WordApp.Selection.Font.Bold := 1
Unset bold font style:
WordApp.Selection.Font.Bold := 0
Set font color to red:
WordApp.Selection.Font.Color := 0xFF0000
Set line spacing to 10.5:
WordApp.Selection.ParagraphFormat.LineSpacing := 10.5

The script will set the font color if the Word document is the active window and is not busy (e.g. selecting a command).

If you want to set any other property in Word but don’t know how, the Word macro recorder can help. Start the macro recorder, set the property manually, and then view the resulting macro. This will give you an idea of how to do it with AutoHotkey.

This script is optimized to be used with ShortKeeper. As such, there is no exception handling, no “Return” at the end, and variable(s) don’t need to be cleared. ShortKeeper does all of this automatically. Just copy/paste the code in the PARAM field in ShortKeeper, set your hotkey, save, and you’re ready to use your new keyboard shortcut.

Lightbulb Keyboard Shortcut - Open Link in a New Tab while Surfing
Posted by: denilama - 02-28-2018, 08:45 PM - Forum: Keyboard shortcuts with AutoHotkey code - No Replies

Are you looking for a way to quickly open links in new tabs while surfing? The following script will let you do just that without even having to click on your mouse. Simply hover your mouse over a link and use a keyboard shortcut. A new tab will be opened in the web browser, and the view will be switched to the new tab (the new tab will become active). It is the equivalent of holding down Ctrl+Shift while clicking the left mouse button OR right-clicking the link and selecting “Open link in new tab”.

Lightbulb Keyboard Shortcut - Set Font Color in Excel
Posted by: denilama - 02-27-2018, 02:32 PM - Forum: Keyboard shortcuts with AutoHotkey code - No Replies

The following AutoHotkey script lets you set a font color in Excel. The script can also be easily adapted to set several other useful commands (like protect/unprotect a worksheet, set a cell formula/color/border, set currency, set conditional formatting, and so on).

The script will set the font color if the Excel worksheet is the active window and is not busy (e.g. editing, selecting a command).

The last number (3) at line #7 sets the color of the font to red. A decimal number from 0 to 56 allows for different color options. The following list includes some common color choices:

Lightbulb Keyboard Shortcut - Quick WordPad for Notes
Posted by: denilama - 02-25-2018, 03:06 PM - Forum: Keyboard shortcuts with AutoHotkey code - No Replies

This AutoHotkey script quickly brings an existing WordPad file to the forefront of the desktop, allowing the user to type or read whatever they need and continue working where they left off with minimum disruption. Workflow does not suffer and concentration can be maintained.

A bonus feature of this script is that you do not need to think about whether the WordPad file is open or not. If the file is open, it will bring it to the forefront. The script will not open another copy of the same file (which could result in the loss of some information, if two concurrent versions of the file were edited at the same time).

Need help creating a keyboard shortcut with ShortKeeper using the following AutoHotkey code? This 5-minute tutorial will help!

FileName := "Path+FileName.rtf"
wmi := ComObjGet("winmgmts:")
queryEnum := wmi.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Process where Name = 'wordpad.exe'") ._NewEnum()
while queryEnum[process]
{
 LenCL := StrLen(process.CommandLine)
 LenFL := StrLen(FileName)
 if (LenCL >= LenFL)
   if (FileName = SubStr(process.CommandLine, -(LenFL-1)))
   {
     WinActivate % "ahk_pid" . process.ProcessId
     return
   }
}
Run % "wordpad.exe " . FileName

At line #1, “Path+FileName.rtf” must be replaced with the actual path and name of the WordPad file (do not remove quotation marks).

This script is optimized to be used with ShortKeeper. As such, there is no “Return” at the end and variable(s) don’t need to be cleared. ShortKeeper will do this automatically. Just copy/paste the code in the PARAM field in ShortKeeper, set your hotkey, save, and you’re ready to use your new keyboard shortcut.
